FKA Twigs 'Pendulum' / Music Video



Smooth and delicate, FKA Twigs mesmerises in her latest music video for latest track 'Pendulum'. Her experimental electronic music is always complimented with equally unique imagery and this one is no exception.

FKA Twigs praised performance artist Sasha Waltz for inspiration and rope bondage expert WYKD Dave for helping her to create this incredibly creative music video. WYKD Dave specialises in rope bondage or otherwise known as Shibari or Kinbaku, which is an ancient Japanese form of wrapping the body with rope to restrict the body. I love the rope bondage in the Pendulum video; how FKA Twigs' hair is used as rope giving the impression of a fetishistic Rapunzel.

Twigs is a very important artist both musically and visually in our modern world, someone who's work will inspire future generations and continue to blur the line between music and art.

  2. Absolutely obsessed with this lady! Everything about her is just breathtaking. I'd love to see her live but I'm waiting for the right venue hah! I'd love her to play somewhere like Union Chapel in London. I really wanted to get tickets for the Roundhouse show but decided against it because the last few times I've been there it has been horrendous for watching performances. No doubt that after reading this I'll spend my morning going through FKA Twigs videos now haha! x

    1. I would love to see her live too! She's playing Field Day this year, I know your in to your festivals! I went to the Roundhouse once and absoutely hated it! For different reasons though. I thought the general management was awful, the cloak room and getting people and in and out the venue was terrible!
